If you’re new to using the AppDingo platform for your business, then you started at the perfect time.
Summer is always the busiest season for local service providers, which means you’ll get the most out of your experience with it right now. Here are the top four things you can do with AppDingo to better serve yourself and your customers this summer.
Announce Special Discounts
If you’re running any promotions this summer, use your app to tell your customers!
For instance, if you’re giving a 10% discount for driveway sealcoating, you can blast a text message to your entire list of paving clients. Or, if you’re a landscaper trying to encourage repeat business, you could send a discount code for $50 off exclusively to your newest customers.
In other words, you can tailor your announcements to match whatever special you’re offering this summer. The possibilities are limitless.
Notify Customers About Summer-Specific Services
Another way to use your app is to advise your customers about the seasonal services they need this summer.
These will be the jobs people typically put off until the weather is warm outside or until a tropical storm hits. Some examples include:
- New asphalt paving and repairs
- Central air tune-ups
- Window AC repairs
- Roof repairs
- Gutter and downspout repairs
- Tree cutting and trimming
- Remodels and renovations
- Power washing
- Deck staining
- New fence installation
- Water damage restoration
- Mold testing and environmental testing
- Insect extermination
Your customers likely already have ideas about these services and projects rolling around in their heads–and your well-timed message might just push them over the edge and lead them to contact you.
Plus, the fact that they can easily message you back right there on the app (as opposed to calling you) will make them even more likely to follow through.
Remind Customers About Routine Maintenance Services
These are the recurring maintenance services your customers need multiple times each year, depending on the season. In the summer, those services may include:
- Lawn maintenance
- Landscape maintenance
- Pest control and extermination
- Central air tune-ups
- House cleaning
- Swimming pool maintenance
- Dumpster rentals for construction companies
And if your company also offers year-round maintenance plans, the end of summer could be an opportune time to get your customers scheduling services in advance for the fall and winter. Use your app to notify them that it’s time to book you before your calendar fills up!
Schedule Appointment Reminders
People are always busy, but especially so during the summer.
Between long vacations, weekend getaways, children’s camps, and so on, service appointments often get lost in the shuffle. Your customers will appreciate a gentle reminder via push notification about their upcoming appointments.
